Langenlois Grüner Veltliner
Kamptal DAC 2021
In our Grüner Veltliner "Ortswein" we try to reflect Langenlois in liquid form. The grapes for it come from selected, historic vineyard parcels with calcareous loess soils, located south and southeast of Langenlois. During the Ice Age, loess was deposited as fly ash from the "Kalkalpen" mainly by the wind. The vines can root extremely deep in it and absorb the finest elements of the calcareous soils. In addition to the altitude differences and exposures of the vineyard parcels, the pronounced day-night temperature differences and the cool winds also shape the vines and the wines. The Langenlois Grüner Veltliner is a typical Kamptal wine. It impresses with juicy elegance, multi-layered finesse and herbaceous spiciness. A traditional Grüner Veltliner - lively, precise and with lots of juiciness.
Making of the wine
The grapes for Grüner Veltliner Langenlois Ortswein were carefully harvested by hand. After a few hours of maceration, the wine was vinified in stainless steel and in neutral, large oak barrel, with gentle bâtonage on the fine lees.
